Regarding the Prohibition of Feeding Wildlife

Stop feeding wildlife

In recent years, wildlife nuisances (agricultural damage, damage to people's homes, personal injury etc.) have become a very serious problem.

There are a number of possible reasons for this.One of the major causes is people feeding wildlife and leaving out garbage that wildlife can eat, with or without the intention of feeding wildlife. Wild animals become dependent on these sources of food and then cause damage to areas of human habitation as they search for more of this food.

Under no circumstances should you feed wildlife. Also, do not leave out garbage in places where it could become food for wildlife.
